According to BBC Shakespeare Animated Tales-Julius Caesar, Brutus supposed to not kill Julius Caesar because it only makes Romans rebel especially Mark Antony. Brutus should think about the murdering deeply and do not follow on Cassius advice.

Julius Caesar is the most influence people in Rome, Brutus should know that. By killing Rome dictator, it only put himself in trouble. Even though Caesar was not a good person but he still loves Brutus. He provides the best education for Brutus and Brutus have to think wisely before make the decision to kill his adopted father.

Brutus should realize without Caesar he is nothing. By killing Caesar is not a noble motive but it is more to revenge because the idea derives from Cassius not him. Cassius seems like to hate on Caesar because he had all the title and respect from Romans even though he is a bad person.

Caesar is an old man and he would not protect himself if all the 12 persons attack him. The consequences of the murder also not been thought by Brutus, because of Cassius words he does not think the results on his action.

In conclusion, Brutus has no reason to kill his adopted father because Caesar is an old man. Brutus actually did not respect him as a father although Caesar had killed thousands of people but he still cares on Brutus.

Ancient Behaving Badly; Julius Caesar

Due to the documentary, Caesar is a psychopath. He has no mercy towards children and women. He is a bisexual and enjoys his sex life with aristocrats’ wives and believes he can dominate all people around him. He is actually was a great dictator, he manage to guide Rome in a supreme place before century. He knows how to handle the politics and armies.

At the first, when he is a captive to the pirates, he shows his credibility by promising to kill the pirates soon after the ransom; he fulfilled the promises and crucifies all of them. This is ridiculous because he did this to others who are innocent. He loves revenge and he loves to torture people he also did not care on others feeling. However it is good to maintain the peaceful of Rome. But sadly, it only makes him feel like he is the perfect dictator.

But then, he became more powerful after he is appointed as governor even though he is in big debt. To solve the issue, he tries to conquer the unconquered Gaul. He also using hi-technology weapon which is a designed arrow with space for them to put in something such as ball of fire to defeat the enemy. This is good because he wanted to defend the Rome Empire. However he is over the boundaries where he does not allowed women, children, old citizens’ fugitive to enter the Rome because Rome is only for Romans.

The desperation of war fugitives do not make him changed his mind. He shows the anger by let them die in starvation. He has no humanity. Therefore, his action is not necessary in order to safeguard the superiority of Rome. He enjoys himself by seen them being tortured.
